United States of America Shoe Collection To Launch July 4th
I’m all for buying products made in North America, in fact I have a post brewing about Fair Trade and locally sourced products. The brand ShoeString Shoes™ has just announced the launch of their new United Shoes of America™ shoe line, the only children’s sneaker brand made entirely from U.S. materials and components. Featuring styles with red, white and blue colors, the collection will debut July 4th at select online and retail locations including Lively Kids and Shoebuy.com. Additionally, it will be available at Nordstroms.com later in July.
Unlike many locally produced fashions, these shoes won’t cost you an arm and a leg. Art Rogers, general manager of ShoeString Shoes said, “We know that American consumers feel strongly about buying products made here at home and know this point of differentiation will resonate.”
United Shoes of America shoes will be offered in a variety of styles. Toddler styles include the Mary Jane, T-Strap, Slip-On, Vintage OX Lace and Vintage Hi-Top Lace. Youth styles include Slip-On and Vintage Hi-Top Lace. Footwear ranges in prices from $36.99 – $49.99 and each pair of shoes comes with a reusable natural cotton drawstring bag. Select styles will be phased into retail locations throughout July.
All component materials for United Shoes of America are made in U.S. fabric mills, plants and other factories. The materials are then cut, sewn and processed by U.S. workers in the finishing factory for a truly 100 percent Made in America product. Environmentally friendly components include adhesive-free sole construction, waste reduction with the recycling and reuse of excess molded materials and reduced carbon emissions by only shipping in the U.S.
